Tinatin (Tina) Khidasheli, Georgia
"A long-time advocate of democratic reform, Ms. Khidasheli was a staunch critic of the former government. She founded and heads the non-governmental organization "Georgia's Young Lawyers Association," which played a major role in blowing the whistle on Georgia's fraudulent November 2003 elections. Her organization is also a critical watchdog of the new government, publishing articles in local and Western newspapers and also privately consulting with the Georgian Government on proposed laws. Ms. Khidasheli is a source of sharp analysis and critique that both the government and civil society respect."
